Highly customisable but can be used as-is (needs only relevant images adding to complete and this has been clearly labelled).Differentiation: e.g. add verb prompts to activity 1, key words for activities 3 & 4, remove "why" from the questions in activity 4 or ask simpler questions/re-write the text, remove the code-breaker for HALs, amend the questions for activity 7, provide the German words to find for activity 9's word search.

Film titles DE-EN (Starter activity)

Film titles DE-EN (Starter activity)

A list of film titles in German - pupils must guess the common English name. The 'stars' can simply be dragged off the answers to reveal the solutions. A good starter or warm-up activity. I usually do it with pupils working in pairs but it could be a solo activity. Some answers are more obvious than others! (Updated July 2013 to correct one of the titles - thank you to the commenter below who spotted an error. The correct title is 'Wie werde ich ihn los in 10 Tagen'.)
